Null Hypothesis:

Using Isopropyl alcohol as an additive of the cologne has no significant effect on the body odor produced by humans.

Alternative Hypothesis:

Using Isopropyl alcohol as an additive of the cologne has significant effect on the body odor produced by humans.

Significance of the study

First of all, we chose this product because we ourselves want to help other teenagers who have a problem with body odor and as we all know that alcohol is made up of any organic compound. actually it’s not just for teenagers who suffers body odor but also for those who are conscious about their body smell. some spend their money just to buy an expensive perfume or deodorant. some says “more expensive, more effective” which is true but, our product is anti bacterial and at the same time we used flowers that is common that’s why we chose this product.  

Statement of the problem

1. What is the use of the alcohol in the cologne?

in terms of:




2. What are the possible comments of people after testing the said product?

3.why did you come up with the idea of using alcohol as an additive?

Definition of terms

Organic compound-  virtually any chemical compound that contains carbon

Additive- a substance added to something in small quantities, typically to improve or preserve it.

Scope and limitations

This study is limited only on the effects of the Isoproply alcohol on the Sampaguita and Gumamela flowers. This is to determine the longevity, quality and smell of the Sampaguita and Gumamela flowers as cologne.

Background of the study

alcohol is any organic compound in which the hydroxyl functional group (–OH) is bound to a saturated carbon atom.[2] The term alcohol originally referred to the primary alcohol ethanol(ethyl alcohol), the predominant alcohol in alcoholic beverages.The suffix -ol appears in the IUPAC chemical name of all substances where the hydroxyl group is the functional group with the highest priority; in substances where a higher priority group is present the prefix hydroxy- will appear in the International Union of Pure and Applied Chemistry (IUPAC) name. The suffix -ol in non-systematic names (such as paracetamol or cholesterol) also typically indicates that the substance includes a hydroxyl functional group and, so, can be termed an alcohol. But many substances, particularly sugars (examples glucose and sucrose) contain hydroxyl functional groups without using the suffix. An important class of alcohols, of which methanol and ethanol are the simplest members is the saturated straight chain alcohols, the general formula for which is CnH2n+1OH.
